Hot Summer in Washington Park

Plenty of opportunities this summer to get out and enjoy music, food and fun at Washinton Park.
Provided, 3CDC

  

Washington Park has become a gathering place for the city, and that is even more true during the summer months, when something is happening almost all the time in the Over the Rhine park, from kickball to group yoga, the City Flea to the World Market. And music, Jazz to Bluegrass to R&B. Brittney Carden, communications officer with Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC), and Jake Speed, of Jake Speed & The Freddies, clue us in to the many events going on at Washington Park this summer, along with some edification on the history and growing popularity of Bluegrass.
